    I have a wifi only iPad and I realize it won't work on the road without service........but I'll be tethering my droid x to the iPad to have service so why won't it let me download?

    Q8. “Will the application work with a WiFi iPad if it is hooked up to an external GPS device?”

    A8. At this time, there aren't any external GPS modules compatible with the WiFi iPad that don't require a jail-broken device. We will update the MotionX News Room if compatible devices become available.

    Apparently I'm lost because I thought the app itself is the gps?!

    GPS is hardware, not software. The GPS hardware receives the signals from the GPS satellites in orbit.

    MotionX, and other apps, interpret the signals and put them into something we can use rather than just the raw data received by the GPS radio.

    As for why it won't let you install, that's to keep hoards of angry customers from storming Cupertino demanding their money back for apps that don't work on their device.

    Even so, there is the occasional mob milling about looking for an unguarded entrance. I think they are all lawyers though. ;)

    FOT -- I enjoy making them, entirely too much and often at the wrong place and time. Thanks.

    Sorry. I really would have rather been helpful (well, mostly rather) but I don't know of any solution outside the few GPS/app solutions you have to pay for.

    If you ever do find one please let us know. Even though I have a GPS iPad I also have a Droid X, and it sounds like it would be something interesting to play with.

    Use your X for gps. Google maps or there are other gps apps available on the X.
